Did Nishi kill Tengu and try to take out Nurarihyon just for the points, or is there a little humanity left in him somewhere? After all, he saved both Knob-yan and Katou. He could have smashed all of Nurarihyon, probably killing both Nuri and Katou, or hit Nuri again before Katou had time to get free. But he didn't, even though he just barely let Katou get out before he fired again.
75 points this round. Looks like we'll get to see what he does with his 100 points sooner rather than later.
I wonder who said "Punk!" when his score came up? Looks like he's already making enemies. Maybe Inaba wants to challenge him? I can see Inaba's face exploding like the biker punk's did.
Nishi's tactics worked pretty well this time; if he had just hunted a few more small game instead of saving Katou and trying to take out mega-boss Nuri, he would have had 100 points just like Katou.

Okay here are my 5 cent about Nishi-kun:
Why is Nishi a coward?
Gantz is a survival of the fittest not the survival of the most insane bastards who can beat aliens even if they are nude or druggys.
It's funny to read about guys like Kuwa and all the other Osakans, Izumi, Kei etc. but their methods aren't really sane, or would you jump in a life/death situation into trouble like one of them?
Call Nishi a coward all you want but in my opinion he is the only one who is sane and doesn't want to take to much risk.
Nishi doesn't tell everyone what he knows?
I think he doesn't tell them not because he is sadistic but because he (again) doesn't want to take to much risk. Nishi was in gantz for one whole year so he saw all the fucked up idiots that ended up in there...
If you tell people like the Bikers or the Rapists everything you know, what reason do they have to not kill you after you told them?
If we learned something while reading gantz it has to be that you can't trust anyone inside of gantz. Maybe Nishi once trusted people but a situation like the Tae Mission happened and he understood that he can't trust anyone because they could turn against him.
Information is in gantz like power, if nishi wouldn't have infos he Kurono would have never even thought about reviving him.
And Nishi told the people the important infos they needed to know after they proved that they are worth it (he told them that their heads will explode if they talk about gantz, and thatthey are copys)
So... maybe it is cowardice but it is at least smart cowardice.
Hopefully you people get my point and don't think I'm an insane Nishi fanboys.
Yeah, the guy most likely to survive a war, battle after battle, isn't the guy who runs in yelling. In fact, he's the guy who dies during his first mission. The veterans won't tell him not to; he's the one who shows them where the enemy is hiding. While he's dying, they are noting the directions where the bullets are coming from. The veterans survive mission after mission because they know what to expect, and they don't get close to those rookies who are going to die in a few days. They aren't going to tell them anything or let them into their circle of friends until they have been through a few missions and look like a survivor.
its been a while since i read stage 1
but im almost 100% nishi never cleared
if he had, he would of never cried like a bitch during phase one
when he was thinking in his mind how he wouldn't be able to see him mom again
something like "i was so close"
if he honestly was able to clear 100 points
he would of been long gone before kei came
lol for some reason I find it funny when people use that as an example, would you just sit there while your eyes,ears and mouth were bleeding?
Secondly nishi is the most human character in terms of fighting strategy in my opinion, he doesnt have much strength so he uses his smarts. He is one of few characters who actually use stealth, and there is nothing wrong with it. If I were in gantz i would probably use the same tactics he used, stealth and go around killing.
You also have to remember that nishi was stuck with people who had never played the game before for who knows how long. Kinda hard to take out all the aliens in one mission and the boss by yourself aint it. The reason he didnt clear is prob because he waited for time to run out on several missions.
btw i called the tengu kill I guess
My opinion on Nishi:
Personally, I don't like Nishi, but it has nothing to do with him being a coward (he's not). It's because he's arrogant. Not to say he doesn't have good reason to be. He's obviously the smartest character Gantz has seen. He's a weak middle schooler and he knows it (even with the suit he's not that impressive), but he's proven he can make up for it with sheer brainpower. I can't knock that.
I'm also pretty sure I've figured out what kind of person he is in real life. Nishi's the kid who's smarter than everyone, knows it, and flaunts it. People don't like that, so he got picked on everyday. But since he's arrogant, he couldn't see it was his own fault and blamed everyone else. IMO thats where all his hatred towards bikers, strength, aliens, and people in general comes from.
yea I pretty much agree with that, nishi does seem smarter then most people also I wonder if he wears his suit outside gantz or not.(I mean school wise so dont point me to the train fight)
Nishi is a sadistic bastard who uses people as his pawns,
and that 75 points was from the almost dead tengu, remember the lag they where talking about? it wasn't from knob, it was from nishi,
If he were so smart, he would have cleared the stage, killing every alien he can get, he is just like a scavenger, taking points from the almost dead aliens
well if you check the first two pages yea I pointed out that he did kill tengu, although originally it was from george. also i dont think he ment to kill steal tengu, if knob coulda finished it im sure nishi woulda let him finish it. Knob was screwed though, nishi saved his life assuming he is alive. also its not very smart to just go out and try to kill everyone.
I agree with chief. In the first mission Nishi was gonna give Kei his kill on onion. He can be cruel, but for some reason he doesn't steal kills.
His appearance has changed a lot.
I like the first design, now he look older and not so disturbing and psychopatic like in the old days. However he still being Nishi and i love him.
I think that his change in appearance is down to a combination of maturity and an improvement in art style, although I have to agree with you, in the earlier pics he looked like a real little bastard.
